People often want to know where the ideas for a game come from. Let me tell you how Planets Under Attack, the latest from Targem Games, was invented and what it turned out to be.
It all started with this hand-drawn picture of an enormous gun, covering half of the planet. Some sketches that followed were incredibly helpful when it came down to choosing the setting, since they had been done in this nice cartoonish style. We decided to create a world that would be like a cross-section of sci-fi, with humans, robots, aliens and all that. Then we crafted an entertaining story that played up the usual sci-fi clichés. But more than anything, we wanted the game to be fun. The end result is a game called Planets Under Attack – a concise and dynamic strategy game. It’s easy to play, but hard to master. The game’s trailer distinctly defines all these features.
